APA – Citing Sources

Tags: English

Combining different sources

Repeat the reference when switching between different sources so that it is clear what source is connected to the given information. Read your sentences carefully to ensure you have cited the sources appropriately and that it is clear to the reader. 

Example: 

Fox (2010) claims that reading aloud surely can be regarded as a teaching situation. When children and adults are gathered around a book, the child's communication skills are reinforced. (Dominkovic et al., 2006). Moreover, it helps the child to learn to relax and it also increases the child's ability to concentrate (Fox, 2010).
